…For anyone worried that a tour of duty in Europe may mean a Skittles sabbatical, worry not. While the colorful candy is now banned across much of the European continent, Army and Air Force Exchange Service stores will continue to stock the brand…

Skittles are widely available in the UK and presumably elsewhere, manufactured to European food safety standards.

The European Union has banned the use of Titanium Dioxide in food, an ingredient which gives Skittles the bright colors.

Think of the strength titanium provides!

0ur skittles are made without the offending chemical and are anything but dull in colour!

That's good to know. The EU ban just went into full effect this month.

In that case I'll caveat my statements because I'm in Brexitland !

Why is this important?

It's important because they're Skittles!
Have you never had a Skittles?

Great, now can we get Kinder Eggs figured out? I would totally buy those.

I love skittles. Fortunately the supply seems to be good down here…

Skittles? Pah! We have Smarties…

Well now I can sleep better at night knowing this … 🛌

Smarties beat Skittles, hands down.

I don't actually like sugar. I just eat Skittles for the titanium dioxide.

Same with cake frosting. The shinier the better.
